Guam – The makers of Guam’s smart meters, Landis and Gyr , will be on island next week to inspect a coupe of smart meters that have stirred up controversy between GPA and energy consulting firm, first green solutions.

Landis and Gyr will be touring the Gloria B. Nelson building on May 11 as well as testing GPA’s smart meters to make sure they are taking accurate measurements and to find out if they’ve been configured properly to measure power savings. according to PUC documents the payment for such testing, if any, shall be determined at a later meeting. It’s important to note that the smart meters in question are with large customers such as hotels and large shopping complexes. First Green Solutions maintains that GPA is inaccurately measuring smart meters and in turn they are overcharging large customers by understating their power savings each month. Rick Sparacio, CEO of First Green, says GPA could be liable to pay back customers ‘millions of dollars in overcharges.’
